Ahhh, the dinning room. This space used to be a bedroom, note the awkward nook in the left corner which was the closet. There's already four bedrooms in the house, so this bedroom right across from the living room had to go. Sorry for the lame pictures, I didn't think I'd keep any of these.
I really haven't done much to this space. All we did was make it "liveable", because it wasn't even close before. So far we removed the wall between the hallway and dinning room, stained the floors, painted, installed a chandelier, and bought a buffet to fit into the closet area.

My boyfriend and my mom went halfers on this for me for christmas. I forgot how time consuming and sometimes irritating putting Ikea furniture together can be. We dont have an Ikea in Winnipeg so my uncle bought it in Ontario and had it shipped here on a Greyhound bus. I was astonished that it wasn't in pieces when It arrived. It fits perfectly into the space where the closet used to be.
Here are some bits and pieces.
P.S. Its no where near done, soo much to do still.

This is my next big project, finish the dinning & living room.
I'm thinking wainscotting, a little more simple than this, but it's a start.
